Jakarta: Temper tantrums can be frustrating for any parent. But instead of seeing it as a disaster, treat the tantrum as an opportunity for education. Tantrums are common in boys and girls, between one and three years of age.

Temper tantrums range from whining and crying to screaming, kicking, hitting, and holding your breath. Usually occurs because the child is tired, hungry, or uncomfortable. As a result, they vent their frustration to get something or do what they want. 

How to deal with a tantrum child

When a child has a tantrum, as quoted from Kids Health, parents must remain calm in responding to his tantrum. Don't be frustrated or grumpy. Remember, parents must help children learn to calm down. Sometimes it's better to ignore the outburst or distract the child with a new activity. Here's what parents can do:

- If a tantrum is happening to get parental attention, one of the best ways to reduce this behavior is to ignore

- If a tantrum occurs after your child has been rejected by something, stay calm and don't explain too much about why he can't get what he wants. Continue with other activities with your child

- If a tantrum occurs after your child has been told to do something he doesn't want to do, it's best to ignore it. Make sure parents follow up to have the child complete the task after he has calmed down

- If safety concerns are involved and the toddler repeats the prohibited behavior after being told to stop, use a time-out or hold the child firmly for a few minutes. Consistent. Don't give in to safety concerns

- For school-age children, it's appropriate to send them to their room to cool off while paying a little attention to their behavior

How to avoid tantrums 

There are several ways that parents can do to avoid tantrums. Try to prevent a tantrum from happening in the first place, whenever possible. Here are some ideas that can help: 

1. Give lots of positive attention. Reward your little one with praise and attention for positive behavior. Try to give your toddler control over the little things. Offer small choices like "Would you like orange juice or apple juice?" or "Would you like to brush your teeth before or after a shower?" 

2. Keep prohibited objects out of sight and reach, especially outdoors where the environment cannot be controlled. Divert your little one's attention. 

3. Take advantage of your little one's short attention span by offering something else in exchange for what they can't have. 

4. Help children learn new skills, if successful praise what they can do.

5. Know your child's limits. If your little one is tired, this is not the best time to go shopping or try to do one more task. Do not forget, praise the child when they have calmed down again.
